5 Things We’re Excited to Eat and Drink in June

This month, treat yourself to some lobster tagliatelle, summer slushes and vegan ice cream.

Summer Slush from Ol’ Beautiful Brewing Company

Made with watermelon, lychee, gin, triple sec and lime, Ol’ Beautiful’s summer slush may be one of the most refreshing things you’ll drink all summer. Order it on a hot day and grab a seat on the brewery’s expansive patio.

Vegan Ice Cream from One of a Kind Vegan Ice Cream

This local ice cream company just launched in May, offering vegan ice cream in flavours like vanilla cinnamon bun, strawberry milkshake, chocolate brownie fudge and chocolate mint swirl. Pick up a pint at Nan’s Noodle House, or get a pint or cone at For Goodness Bake to try it for yourself.

Pie Junkie has released a lineup of frozen pies just in time for summer, and we’ve got our eye on the raspberry semifreddo. This take on the Italian dessert has a frozen mousse texture and is topped with a vibrant raspberry purée that is sure to make it a showstopper on any table.

Sunday Fuzz from Wild Rose Brewery

Wild Rose Brewery has brought back its seasonal Sunday Fuzz beer for a third year, and if that weren’t good news enough, it’s in support of a good cause. When you buy a four-pack of the beer, 25 cents will support the work of the Chimo Animal Assisted Wellness and Learning Society. You can get your hands on the peach-flavoured hefeweizen at the Wild Rose taproom, online and at local retailers.

Located on the 27th floor of The Dorian hotel, The Wilde recently launched a new lunch service from Tuesday to Saturday that runs from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. There are several delicious menu options to choose from, but one must-try is the tagliatelle. It features Atlantic lobster, 1/2 butter poached lobster, lobster emulsion, spring peas, fava beans and Alberta boar bacon. Pair that with the restaurant’s rooftop views and you have a very memorable dining experience.
